Many people around the UK send us new knits, mainly for babies (hats, jackets and blankets). We work mainly with the three mission hospitals in the north – Ekwendeni, Embangweni, Livingstonia (David Gordon Memorial). These hospitals each cover an area with over 100,000 residents. Much of this is remote country and the people are the poorest in the world. The hospitals have a policy of giving new knits to every mother who gives birth in the hospital. As the alternative is to give birth at home, often unattended by qualified or trained staff, this policy is saving lives. So your new knits are saving lives of babies and also of mothers!
Well done! Keep it up!Do's and dont's
